    Default A New Instinctual Variants Theory

    I observed the following categories of motivation when analyzing intellectuals:

    The 3 new instinctual variants: Pragmatist (P), Rationalist (R), and Metaphysicist (M).

    The very vague and loose connections to the regular instincts: P=Sp, R=So, and M=Sx.

    Pragmatists - Putting practices into action. (realistic like Sp)

    Rationalists - Inventing reasonings for things. (explorative like So)

    Metaphysicists - Envisioning beyond the mundane. (psychic like Sx)

    My theories on which variants various forum members on my friends list may be (feel free to correct me):

    Poimandres R/M, @Zang M/P, @superunknown R/P, @SolitaryWalker R/M, @Elfboy P/M, @The Great One P/R, @Speed Gavroche P/R, @Ene M/R, @greenfairy M/R, @Mal+ R/M, @Riva R/P

    I like it. Nice little neat systems like this make me happy. Pretty accurate- except I don't think rationalism really translates to So much at all. And by this I would be Sp last, which I am definitely not.

    I'm trying to figure out the underlying pattern and structure of your theory, but I can't as yet find it. So probably more feedback in the near future.

    One issue I can see is that the original instinctual variants are based around the first three chakras, grounding the theory around something more solid
    . This is kind of what I'm looking for in yours. What I see is the physical plane, the mental, and the etheric/astral/spiritual- so that could translate into chakras in different ways, but not as neatly.

    That's an interesting connection. I would say that P=physical, R=mental, and M=astral.
    Please describe how the physical, mental, and astral chakras work, as it would help to refine my theory and enlighten us.

    I definitely only poke my head into the realm of metaphysicality under necessity. Feels.... unclean.

    Though I wonder if you got the correlations correct. I feel P, R and M are Sp, Sx and So, respectively. Metaphysicality usually entails a grand scope of things, typically addressing social standings, existence as an abstract and such.

    I might be trying to shoehorn these in.

    I like this, it makes things a lot simpler. Seems accurate.

    I found some information here that might connect nicely with greenfairy's chakra example:

    The universe and the spiritual Hierarchy are mirrored in us through many subtle bodies. We have, the biological or physical body - the etheric body, which is made of ether or life-energy - the astral body, which is the body of concrete consciousness shaped by the psyche (thoughts, feelings) - the mental body, which is the body of abstract consciousness perceived by pure awareness, which opens on realms of experience not bounded by space and time; and the spiritual or causal body named also the Light body, which is the root of consciousness and the inner*most essence of the Soul. As with the levels of the macrocosm, each body can be seen as governing the body "below" it — that is, denser or more material than itself; thus, for example, the astral body is shaped and directed by the mental body, and in turn shapes and directs the etheric body.
